About the Concert

Santa Rosa Symphony favorite, Olga Kern, returns to perform Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto, Emperor, a grand virtuosic showpiece setting the pianist up as the hero battling the orchestra. Wagner’s warm and swelling Lohengrin: Prelude to Act 1 provides the perfect beginning for a year of hope and recovery along, with the much-anticipated First Symphony by Composer-in-Residence Gabriella Smith, commissioned by First Symphony Project* donors.

*This is the second season of the First Symphony Project. This four-season project with four world premieres by American composers is commissioned by the Santa Rose Symphony, the Eugene Symphony and nine patron households including Music Director Francesco Lecce-Chong.
